my halloween pumpkin

As I sort our recent family pictures, I realized I forgot to share and upload Samantha's Halloween pictures here. Pardon me for posting it quite late... anyway, better than never. Hahaha! This year, my little girl came as the Halloween pumpkin. Just look at her ... ain't she adorable in those orange-y pumpkin costume! (love your own, syempre! lol.)

Halloween Party at Mommy's office : The little girl enjoyed her Halloween Party at Bayan this year. Aside from participating with the games, she had her face painted with flowers, and happily went home with looottsss of candies and loots. We were able to fill up one SM plastic bag from her office-to-office trick or treat activity.

Halloween Activity in school. Kids were asked to come with their simplest halloween costume. (yeah, right!) Which I don't think was followed by some pasaway Moms. Madami stage mothers noh?! Hahaha! Just look at the pictures below. Obviously, madami kuma-career! lol. Not me... one costume for all the parties worn by Sam. Tipid noh?! lol.

early Christmas gift

I recently purchased a V-tech Learning System for Samantha from the Toy Kingdom Sale. The idea was to give this interactive toy to Sam as Christmas gift from Santa. BUT, dear old Santa was not careful enough to hide the toys ... the little girl found all the TK platic bag loots (all toys for Christmas) under the bed inside the guest room. Darn! Santa was not smart enough to hide the toys somewhere! lol.
Anyway, upon seeing the Dora the Explorer V-tech toy, the little girl got so eagerly excited! She won't stop pleading, begging and kissing me just to let her open the toy. Hah! Of course, how can I say NO with those pleading eyes and sweet kisses ... it'll be hard to resist. Thus, I let her open her supposedly Christmas present.

Samantha happily playing with her new toy

And now the Mommy is pressured. I need to shop and replace Santa's gift again. I've been thinking several gift options such as the Chicco vanity kit, the Barbie playhouse, or an Aquadoodle. No definite idea yet. I am hoping these items still on-sale at Richwell. Otherwise, I might end uo getting her colorful ipods. Hahaha!

Luckily, I just need to replace one gift. As soon as she saw her V-tech toy, she didn't bother to snoop the contents of the other TK shopping bags. If she dug further... she might find all her Christmas presents inside. Gifts from Mommy, Daddy, Kuya and Baby Jesus. Haayyy...still lucky indeed.

obesity problem

Obesity is something that is not isolated to a certain race or nationality. But rather, this has been a consistent problem everybody … as in everybody, is faced with. That is why fat burners are becoming an essential “way of life” of practically everyone.

Burning fats has become a multi-billion industry worldwide. And it has captured the imagination and vision of everyone. From manufacturing equipment, to medical advancements, all these lead to one thing … to burn fats. Now, fat burner come is various shapes and sizes. It may be as simple as taking diet pills or to as complicated as medical procedures to rid ourselves of the unwanted fats.

But with all these innovations, the best and most effective is going back to the basics… the basics of eating the right food. fat burner is most effective if there is “less fat” to burn. Hence, eating the right food the body need, makes the easier for the natural “fat burning” activities a normal person does. Because a person tends to burn fats the natural way. And if this still fails … then fat burners are always available right off the shelves.

my happy weekend

Just a quick post , I want to share why I am giddy-happy this week. My LV EPI NOE in Yellow.

I leave you with all the details about my new love here.

For the meantime, I need to check online for term life insurance quotes for my Mom. I was told she was offered by our distant relative a life insurance quote from a local insurance provider company. I am quite apprehensive about the policy or benefits offered to her. Need to check if she really got a good deal out of it.

Toy Shopping Frenzy

Just a quick post from the Toy Kingdom Warehouse Sale I visited earlier today at SM Megatrade Hall 2. Big discounts up to 70% off on all toy items. Great toy selection at unbelievable price discounts. Branded toys like Chicco, V-tech, Bratz, Barbie, Disney, Zoids etc on sale. Amazingly low priced items, all in good packaging condition. Ideal toy gifts for this coming holiday season.

The downside, with all the excited shoppers like me trooping the warehouse sale, expect long (as in) line at the cashier. I think we spent almost three hours here lining up and filling up our shopping cart (and boxes). Truly a tiring experience. With all these crazy holiday shopping, I might need to have my arms and shoulders checked. With the endless shopping hours, while heavy shopping bags in tow I am afraid I might need pain pump soon to alleviate my shoulder pains. Hopefully not this drastic.

Anyway, just a tip for the TK Sale : bring a companion to line up in the cashier while you shop in turns for shopping efficiency. Happy Shopping!!
